'WHAT YOU SEE (on your Screen)' VS. 'WHAT YOU GET (when it's printed)'

What I designed was Justice with some nice purple-y-gray columns that coordinated with her dress; what the printer (ink vs. digital coloring) returned to me follows it.

Likewise, the first 3 Pents is my original design coloring; the second is what the printer created in ink.

{And both of these are influenced by what my scanner can pick up}

Last night on TGC someone was telling me that all their colors come out saturated and I have to draw/save them in CMYK and then convert them to RGB to get them to ink-print the same colors as I designed; in MS Paint I have no idea what they are talking about; I saved them in PNG. Anyone have a clue?
